About the CEH (Master) exam
CEH (Master) exam is quite different than any other performance-based assessments. The exam tests the abilities of a candidate by simulating real-world environments. The exam consists of a complete specific ethical hacking challenge that you need to solve in the specified time limit. With the practical exam, you have to discover and exploit real-time vulnerabilities while auditing the systems.
CEH Practical is a six-hour exam that requires the participants to demonstrate ethical hacking techniques. The hands-on exam tests your limits in finding vulnerabilities across major operating systems, databases, and networks. The exam also mimics a real-corporate network using virtual machines, applications, and networks.
